Campus and its location
Situated in one of the most beautiful out-skirts of Karkala about a K.M. from the town, the College has an atmosphere quite congenial for studies and inviting for a worthy living away from the buzz of the town. The picturesque natural surroundings pulsating with the dynamic and positive spirit of an ashram of the days that have gone by, make this place an ideal center for university education.
Karkala is a historical place rich in culture and heritage, with India’s most beautiful second big Monolithic statue of Bahubali (Gomateshwara). The name ‘Karkala’ is said to have originated from two words “Kari” and “Kallu” which in vernacular mean “Black” and “Stone”. Rightly, Karkala is endowed with rich rocky mounds and vast granite sheets. Man and nature have meticulously carved out a picturesque township rich with cultural and architectural heritage such as Chaturmukha (four-faced) Basadi, Manastambha at Hiriangadi, Ananthashayana shrine – all works of art on granite. Ramasamudra, the perennial lake, Anekere, a smaller one, in the heart of the town. Along with pristine landscape all around, it is an enchanting place with a population of nearly 35000.
Sri Bhuvanendra College
A great center for higher education in Karkala Sri Bhuvanendra College was established in the year 1960 with the generous donation of an inspiring and pious campus ‘Sri Srinivasa Ashram’ – an area of 17 acres to promote the cause of education by Karkala Sri Venkatramana Temple, also known as Paduthirupathi Venkataramana temple.
Srnivasashrama was established in 1924. It founded a reputed Sanskrit college in 1942 to disseminate Sanskrit education and was managed by Sri Venkatramana Temple Education Trust and Vyasa Raghupati Fund ( Vaidyashala Fund). Sanskrit college offered degrees in Jyothishya, Ayurveda, Sahitya Shiromani which was recognized by Madras University. It was so reputed that students from far and wide came here for Sanskrit scholarship. But after independence with the advent of modern secular education, this Sanskrit Vidyapeeth lost its shine and by 1960 it found no students to seek admission for Sanskrit studies. So the elders and enthusiastic citizens of Karkala hoped to turn this center of Sanskrit learning into a citadel of modern higher education.
During those years the then undivided district of South Canara saw the rise of a visionary named Dr. T.M.A. Pai who had resolved to better the lives of people of this region through institutions of education, industrialization, banking and health services. He had already formed the Academy of General Education in 1948 and had offered to associate with philanthropists and elders of the South Canara district to establish institutions of higher education in different regions of the district. Philanthropists of Karkala like Sri Mukunda Prabhu and Sri Vasudeva Kamath approached Dr. T. M. A. Pai requesting his leadership and also for the sponsorship from the Academy. Their efforts bore fruit in the form of Sri Bhuvanendra College, Karkala which came into being in 1960.
The College was founded in the name of Shrimath Bhuvanendra Thirtha – the seventeenth Swamiji of Shree Kashi Math who was a great ascetic and great scholar of Dwaita Vedanta, Dharma Shastra, Agama Shastra, Jyotisha, Ayurveda, Mantra Shastra, Shilpa Shastra, etc. He was also noted for the depth of his knowledge and for the observance of religious rules.
The man who was appointed to steer this institution as the first Principal was to become a legend in his lifetime – Prof. K. D. Kini. His long service enabled the institution to become a center of par excellence. Sri Bhuvanendra College has celebrated its decennial, silver jubilee, and golden jubilee in a very befitting manner.

The campus is well placed surrounded by nature with greenary all around and with a well equipped infrastructure.

They don’t just impart education but even values that are helpful to shape a student’s life. They not just help you in your academics but also guide you in extra-curriculums. I had a wonderful experience being the secretary of the Commerce Association in my final year; we organised various events with the guidance of our Teachers. This college has given me a lot of opportunities to make the best out of myself

5 years of Sri Bhuvanendra College journey was so colourful and worthy. It has not only taught us education but it has also inculcated good values and morals among us. The location of the college is so divine and ideal. Each and every staff of the Department has supported us not only in learning but also in other curricular activities. And believe me, they were ready to offer extra time to all of us if we were stuck in studies. The College also has number of associations which are always welcoming. I was a part of National Service Scheme, where we were encouraged by the Staff Co-ordinators for all the activities we were performing and also 7 day camps are conducted every year with the motto “Not Me But You”. Being the Secretary of Commerce Association in my Final Year Degree, Commerce Week was conducted by us and it was successful only because of the heartfelt support from the Lectures of our department. The College also has Women Empowerment and Harassment Redressal Cell which deals with any issues regarding women. But honestly, no girl faced any trouble in the campus. The College Library is so good which offers wide range of books and one could easily access them. The academic side is totally relevant and interesting. I am so glad that I chose this college which has been a strong foundation for my higher studies.
College not only educates you for the pursuit of a career, but it also provides general knowledge and introduces real life situations that help students to learn about life and themselves. It was June 17th of 2015 the frst day , I entered Sri Bhuvanendra College and I completed my both PUC and Degree from the same college. It has given me a lot of memories and scope for co-curricular and extra curricular activities. As I’m from commerce background, lectures are really good, awesome teaching faculty with so many experienced lecturers. Even if we have any doubt they are always ready to help us. While talking about library, our library is a place where I like to go every time and it has excellent book facilities. Not only text books, all type of novels and other books are also available. Even internet facilities is there for students in college library which is very helpful. In short I would say that my journey in Sri bhuvanendra College was one of the golden memories in my life and both teaching and non teaching staffs helped me in everyway..
